I don’t work with couples, but can help with difficulties between couples, parents and children, siblings, employers and employees, friends, colleagues, all different forms of relationship.
We are innately relational beings, but sadly we seem not to be innately skilful at relating!
Therapy/counselling addresses what we want from a relationship and how we might go about achieving this. We can explore what is getting in the way of you having a satisfying relationship and how you feel about this. There are many factors to consider – behaviour patterns relating to the past and the present, communication skills, conflict, cultural differences, family values, lifestyle, mental and physical health issues. respect, trust.
Therapy aims to help you to get clear about the difficulties and enables you to develop greater skills in managing your relationship.
Working with a well-qualified and skilled therapist is helpful in understanding relationship; it can be an opportunity to practise relating with another (the therapist) in a safe, non-judgmental environment.
